Right now, former two time-IWGP Heavyweight Champion Yuji Nagata is preparing for his next big singles match for the company. He’s been called out by the IWGP United States Champion Jon Moxley for a title match, and Nagata is never one to take a challenge lightly. However, with Moxley having a major role to play in AEW right now, as alongside Eddie Kingston he feuds with The Elite, will Nagata be coming to him for this title match?
Yuji Nagata Told Lance Archer He Will ‘See Him Soon’
Yesterday in Japan, Yuji Nagata celebrated his 52nd birthday. He posted a picture to social media for this, and former NJPW wrestler and currency AEW wrestler Lance Archer would respond with a friendly ‘Happy Birthday’, which prompted Nagata to say ‘See you soon!’.
This seems to indicate that Nagata has plans to come to the United States in the coming months, which sadly means he won’t be in the G1 Climax this year if he’s coming overseas for the match with Jon Moxley. We don’t know if the plan is for him to wrestle Moxley on NJPW Strong, but his interaction with Archer could show plans for even a one off appearance on AEW.
A History On The TNT Network For Blue Justice
This would be major for two reasons. Firstly, he would be the next part of busting down the so called ‘Forbidden door’ between AEW & NJPW, which was opened by KENTA earlier this year. Secondly, it would have him returning to TNT. Many know him for his time in NJPW, but don’t forget that he spent 1997 & 1998 overseas in WCW on a bit of an excursion.
During that time, he feuded with Ulitmo Dragon, and teamed with Kensuke Sasaki to win a tag team tournament, but failed to win the WCW World Tag Team Championships afterwards. His time there wasn’t major, but it did get him into games like WCW/nWo Revenge for the N64. Now AEW is on the same network, and it’d be only fitting to have Nagata pop back in for a visit, to show Jon Moxley he means business.
